Audacious is a collaborative project set up through the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic aimed with providing current students with an innovative and supportive environment to help develop their own feasible business ideas.
Firebrand have been sponsoring the event for the last three years, offering the winning teams a free of charge website build to help set their newly formed businesses up for success. This years winners, Sam Beattie & Henry Fitz-Gerald, developed their idea for a microtask crowdsourcing platform that allows users to post fixed-price jobs for other users to complete. We're looking forward to getting to know the boys and see how their business develops!
